    Because, like Si, it's intensely personal and strange, and very stubborn about how intensely personal and strange it is.

    It's like it takes one to know one, or take one to like one...or something.

    speaking as someone who has both, I can understand how people would think this. they're both kind of like "this is how it is. it doesn't need an explanation, it just is" a more cerebral function like Ti or Ni could easily look at that and be like "wtf are you talking about? of course it needs an explanation!"

    Fi sucks because it finds reasons to proactively hate other people. It also absorbs irrational ideas and doesn't let go because they are internalized and meld with the person's "character." So its hell to deal with for thinkers.

    People here and sometimes on other typology forums, openly hate Fe more.

    Fi probably appears more victimised in the 'real world' by people who band together in groups. But it's hard to tell, l I find, whether grouping together to exclude someone is necessarily a product of Fe. After all if a group is built of Fi types, who is to say they would not exclude Fe because they feel it might overly structure their value system?

    True Fe considers values in a general group way and it receives these from the environment that surrounds it, so I can see how someone might come to this conclusion, but there are always going to be accompanying functions with that Fe; strong Fe types are not devoid of introspection or the ability to question where their values come from, although perhaps they are less likely to.

    So on both sides there is some truth, but since most people aren't really interested in MBTI, I don't think it can really be said that people hate on Fi, although I understand you have shifted position over time @Elfboy.

    What's interesting to me is how a culture also influences the way in which these interactions are set. For example in my immediate area, while it is true that there are occasional groups excluding someone, often unwittingly because of a clash between Fi and Fe, at the same time most of the people are fairly well grounded and well developed, at least...to an extent.

    When I look at different sub-cultures within a country though, the view changes. For example clique's appear which can be extremely exclusive and essentially rely entirely on pre-judgement of someone by comparison with what the clique deems is 'socially acceptable'. Which translates into 'you just don't look right'.

    This is usually entirely a feeling subject as well because it relies upon vibes or impressions, without looking too far for much more data on the individual in question.

    But it's all about the best and the worst. All types have that divide in them, well it's mainly because humanity does. The worst Fe types, from my personal perspective, are those sickly sweet ones with a veneer of glass and a skill at backstabbing that would make an assassin proud.

    However the best are truely genuine and caring and are able to bring together the best elements of their community. They...care, they really do, in much the same way as Fi types really care about whatever it is that arrests their interest and concern.

    so, am i the only one noticing the difference in tone these conversations have?

    Ti vs. Te: "i'm more competent", "no me!", "i am better at rational understandings", "no i am!"

    Fi vs. Fe: "i'm a bigger martyr", "no me!", "i am a lot more hated & misunderstood", "no i am!"

    Another problem with Fi:

    thinking everyone else feels the same way. Has difficulty logically understanding other functions outside its own awareness. Sometimes generates self righteous attitudes of "look how unselfish I am compared to you." Oftentimes associated with false pride. Its users are the most likely to make threads that say "Don't take MBTI so seriously, its just a tool" and "don't be so judgemental [like I am toward you]." Most likely to deflect others for its problems so it doesn't have to deal with them.

    On the other hand from an Fi point of view,

    I suppose Fe can be hell to deal with. Confrontational, openly emotional, causes drama, shatters interpersonal boundaries between groups of people.

    Fi users are good at reading other people's internal states though, which is nice to have if you're dating another Fi user. One of the things I like about Fi is its ability to have a "quiet understanding" between itself and another person, where no words need to be spoken. At least I THINK that's an Fi thing. If its not, then fuck it. The function is worthless, lmao!
